Preserving Go-Go from the Old School to the New School 8.19-8.21
About this event
Don’t Mute D.C.’s signature mix of artistry and advocacy for Go-Go—D.C.’s “official music”—comes to the REACH. Fifty years before Glenn Close was doing “Da Butt” at the Oscars®, a group of middle school kids from Southeast Washington was forming the legendary band Experience Unlimited, aka EU. The weekend will include live performances and activities, a panel discussion of the “EU @ 50 Project” celebrating five decades of crank, and a screening of the reality series Make Go-Go 4Eva which lays foundation of the rich history of go-go music in Washington, D.C. while passing the torch to the next generation of innovators.
